Located in beautiful Owls Head, Maine our Museum is just one of the attractions that draws throngs of visitors to the Midcoast region each year. An ongoing cultural revitalization has earned the little City of Rockland a great deal of National media attention and it is frequently regarded as one of Maine’s most appealing destinations. With an unusually high concentration of world-class restaurants, museums, galleries and boutiques Midcoast Maine’s natural beauty is augmented by a vibrant year-round scene that boasts a diverse calendar of special interest events and festivals including The Camden International Film Festival, PopTech!, The Camden Conference, the North Atlantic Blues Festival, the Windjammer Festival, the Lobster Festival and the US National Toboggan Championship.

The Owls Head Transportation Museum is grateful to the large community of business supporters and fellow cultural institutions that each contribute to the vibrancy in our part of the world. Whether you are looking to eat, play or stay your options are plentiful.
